Google specialist touts educational benefits at Gheens Academy

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Teachers gathered at Gheens Academy to hear from a Google education specialist about how they and students can benefit from key instructional features of Google Apps.

Google asked the specialist to visit JCPS, after becoming impressed with the district's Google Domain account, which it set up for teachers and students almost a year ago.

"I grew up in New York, and it's a big city, but I had a little library, and that's what we had to use. Now, I have 100,000 of those libraries in my pocket, and what's the impact of that? What's the consequence of being able to access all the world's information, and how can students benefit from that?" said Google Global Education Specialist Jamie Casap.

Casap also met with a pair of Dupont Manual High School students, who have been using Google Glass devices.

They have also started working on several applications-- to benefit students and schools.
